Fly high with an API by Code Academy



Fly high with an API!

Application Programming Interface: A fancy way of saying "do more."

Need a map for your site? Don't code your own — use an API!

APIs let you talk to other web apps like Google Maps and Twitter so that you don't have to build from scratch.

Simply use an API to borrow another app's functionality. Easy!
Learn how to create a web app that can:

- Send text messages with Twilio
- Pull videos from YouTube
- Search for songs on SoundCloud
- Get the latest stories from NPR
The possibilities are as wide as the sky.
